The Mahindra ROXOR has been given a complete redesign and the result is a pair of new models specifically for off-road use.
While the original ROXOR was marketed more like a Jeep (and looked very much like an old Jeep Willys), the marketing this time seems to target the Side-by-Side UTV crowed.
The new ROXOR family is built around a 2.5-liter turbo diesel engine that delivers a claimed 62 horsepower and 144 lb-ft of torque. They also boast a ridiculous 3,490 pounds of towing capacity.
Every ROXOR boasts a box steel frame, seating for two, a wheelbase of 96 inches, 9.0 inches of ground clearance, and leaf spring front and rear suspension. The base model tips the scales at 2990 pounds ready to drive, while the all-weather model comes with a full cab and weighs in at 3,330 pounds.
As for dimensions, the base model ROXOR measures 148” long, 60.7” wide, and 75” tall. The all-weather model adds another two inches of height to the equation.

MAHINDRA LAUNCHES NEW ROXOR
Tough & Reliable SXS Hits Dealer Showrooms This Month
AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (November 11, 2021) – Mahindra announces the launch of its new ROXOR off-road SXS available at select Mahindra dealerships. Production has already begun in its Auburn Hills, Mich., assembly plant and product began shipping to dealers the first week of November.
“The ROXOR brand has built a passionate following with off-road enthusiasts and rural lifestyle customers. We are excited to bring this unique SXS back into the market,” said Viren Popli, President and CEO, Mahindra Ag North America and Mahindra Automotive North America. “We are redefining the SXS category with this strong and rugged machine. It is designed and built for reliability and performance that will exceed customer expectations.”
The new ROXOR maintains the core strength of a boxed steel frame, steel body, a Mahindra 2.5L turbo diesel engine, and its unmatched torque and towing power. ROXOR is perfect for farmers, ranchers, outdoor enthusiasts and rural property owners who are tired of having to fix and replace light-duty, plastic-bodied side-by-sides.
“The fast-growing rural lifestyle segment presents a great opportunity for ROXOR,” said Rich Ansell, VP of Marketing for Mahindra Automotive North America. “The demand for the ROXOR with farmers and ranchers is strong due to the vehicle’s ability to take on the tough jobs around their property. They already know and like the Mahindra brand because of how successful we’ve been with our tractors, and we intend to build on this strong reputation for tough, easy-to-use products.”
“The Mahindra brand is synonymous with tough and ROXOR further solidifies this position,” said Popli. “We are excited to create a new definition of SXS, one that matches our tractors for tough and handles any job with ease.”
